Join #NewVoices, our partners Echoing Ida (@EchoingIda), RH Reality Check (@rhrealitycheck) and BLACK (@_WeareBlack) on Tuesday, March 1, 8-9p EST for this Women of Color HERStory Month® 2016 online event!
Resilience is a term not to be taken likely when applied to women of color and all the ways we persevere through adversity and insurmountable challenges. At New Voices, the motto that guides our work are the words of Nannie Helen Burroughs, "we specialize in the wholly impossible..."
This Twitter Chat on Women of Color Day will highlight how women of color have resisted and continue to resist against attempts to control our lives, bodies, sexuality, gender, work and reproduction. This Twitter Chat will showcase our stories and we will introduce questions that will provoke dialogue around how women of color are standing in their resilience.
What makes you resilient? Who inspires you with the power of women of color? How are you #LivingHERStory?
